First swing at a homemade watch. Learned a lot. The watch guts came from two good will watches and a K mart watch. The wood is reclaimed walnut and cherry (I think). The links are held together with 17 gauge nails. The magnetic clasp magnets came from magnetic refrigerator tacks. Lastly the finish is boiled linseed oil thanks to suggestion from you guys.

That’s just fantastic. It’s something I never would have thought of trying. My hat’s off to you and your creativity.

Now I love this, way cool.
Nicely done.
I just built the tracks for a excavator and just loved the feel of the wood links working their magic.
For the watch it would just be so nice.
